UX / UI Design Project  - Case Study

Project Overview

The purpose of this project is to provide a digital platform for artists to find places to show their artwork. Commercial venues such as restaurants, cafes, and bars can participate in inviting local artists to promote their business.

 

The Art To Space app will also call for artists in the cultural festivals and outdoor farmer’s markets. Connecting artists to space and space to artists can create a culturally dynamic and abundant atmosphere in the community.

Problem 

 

Space for displaying artwork is difficult to find and not many galleries are available in the community.  Young artists want to grow their artist community and network with local artists. It is difficult to find what art shows are out there and make an organized list of events to attend. 

Solution

Art To Space app can find space for an art display by contacting the available venues and spaces.  The user connects with featured artists and organizes a group show. The app has an interactive map of current art events and can be saved.  

User Research

Space for displaying artwork is difficult to find and not many galleries are available in the community. Jasmine thinks that finding an available space online freely would give her more opportunities to showcase her work. She thinks it could be helpful to view a list of open spots for art display on a visual map or a list. Once Jasmine finds what outdoor and indoor spaces  are available, she can contact the space to reserve a spot.

Low-Fidelity Wireframes​

High-Fidelity Wireframes

Below is an example of Task 1. Wireframes. Task 1 is to "find space for art display." There are 3 sets of high-fidelity wireframes developed in this project.

Usability Testing

After the user test, a scroll-down bar has been added. The Notification Icon is highlighted when the page is selected. When swiping left to right, the selected event on the map gets highlighted.
